UK Corporate Games launches in Lancaster

On Thursday 10th October the University of Cumbria hosted the launch event for the UK Corporate Games which will be held in and around Lancaster from the 23rd – 26th July 2020.

The UK Corporate Games give businesses and organisations of all types and size the chance to compete in a sports tournament, which will take place next year in Lancaster. There are 24 sports on the programme from running, cycling, badminton and table tennis to poker and dragon boat racing.

Jon Powell, Head of Enterprise and Innovation Services said: “We are delighted that the UK Corporate Games is coming to Lancaster. This is a real coup for the city to showcase what at amazing place the Lancaster District is to work, live and play!

“Lancaster University is a key stakeholder in the Games. Not only will we be hosting around half of the 24 sports, but 1,500 competitors will be staying on campus and joining in the celebrations at the Registration SuperCentre and Games Celebration Parade. And of course we will be submitting a Lancaster University team to take part.”

The Games weekend will kick off with a registration event being held at the LICA Building. This event will include the Grand Athletes Parade where teams will have the opportunity to gather and parade in to the event in order to be officially welcomed in to the Games.

One of the highlights of the Games will be the Great Games Party held on the Saturday evening where teams will have a chance to get together and enjoy live music with a licensed bar, creating a real festival atmosphere.

At the launch event, Games Director, Doug White gave a short presentation on the success on previous Games, highlighting that the Corporate Games is “open to all for the benefit of all”. The games welcome anyone, regardless of sporting ability or level of fitness.
